Carpentry and Remodeling
I hope I spelled that right. Anyways I don't know how many of you follow YouTube, but the the Perkins Brothers just released a video on siding. I didn't finish it, as I already know their thoughts from a previous video, but they were again discussing Smartside vs fiber cement. They prefer the smartside, I haven't dealt with smartside much or fiber cement at all so this is more of a general question. What are your experiences with these? Intuitively fiber cement seems much more of a future proof option, and I could be wrong but I don't think there's a huge price difference between the two. At face value it seems like smartside is easier to install but much more susceptible to water damage. I know paint is an amazing thing, but it's still just osb essentially. Anyways let me know what your experience has been. At least there both better than vinyl.
